Donald and the Babe
As I watch Donald Trump’s attempts to lead the government, I’m reminded of an old story from baseball lore.
Babe Ruth was an outstanding pitcher and hitter, and believed he could be a successful manager of a major league team. He made his case to the owner of the New York Yankees, Jacob Ruppert. Ruppert was not unaware of Ruth’s legendary inability to exercise self-discipline, and Ruppert was not only perceptive, but blunt.
He told Babe Ruth, “Manage the Yankees? You can’t even manage yourself!” ROBERT NELSON Little Rock
